Well the biggest change today in our yardwork was that we cut those wretched bushes out of the front yard. Those big fir-type ones, that I refer to as WEEDS. We need to finish cutting one out - the chain saw stopped working - and then dig up the stumps but already it looks TONS better! I trimmed a rose bush, and one peony. And then we have a couple of trees - Maples - that have been over run with flowers and such around them. Well we want to turn that into lawn so that will be next up on the list. First we're pulling out all the dead wood thats around them and adding to said burn pile. Next up will be digging up any flowers worth saving, and last - weed-wacking the long grass/hay mess. I'm anxious to have some nice trees, with nice lawn under it for making a tent, or having a picnic lunch.
Oh and this one will clue you in on what the people before us were like. So said neighbor was talking to her DH and she commented "we never see lovergirl playing outside" his reply "well they probably watch her!" Um yes! We do actually watch her. Apparently the little boy here was was not well behaved and the parents rarely kept an eye on him. The neighbors have a pool completely fenced in...and said little boy dug a hole UNDER the fence to get into their pool. I guess that's creative...but tell me where are the parents????????
Ahh yes - just one more reason we're the talk of the neighborhood!
